Singing dentist raises thousands for charity at East Sheen concert
A singing dentist has raised more than £5,000 for diabetes after performing at a concert in East Sheen.
Andrew Bain, 39, took to the stage at the All Saints’ Church on Saturday, October 13, to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Mr Bain, who has worked at the Park Dental Clinic in East Sheen for four years, was joined on stage by Ruth Kerr and an orchestra led by Bernie Lafontaine.
Anuja Wagner, who doctors diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 13 months, was involved with the organisation and promotion of the concert.
She said: “The response has been overwhelming. I can’t believe that people have been so kind and supportive. I am so thrilled they enjoyed the show and that we managed to raise so much money.
“Thank you so much to everyone who has supported this cause.”
There was also a raffle with gifts donated from over 22 businesses in the area, while four girls from Sheen Mount School raised £150 selling homemade cakes.
